Festival of Leaves: A Caramel Ambush

cercidiphyllum-japonicum
Golden Days

Cercidiphyllum japonicum, known as the Katsura, is a species of flowering tree that not only looks good, but smells good in the autumn when the leaves are falling. Wafts of candyfloss or burnt toffee fill the air and the common name of Caramel Tree could not be more apt.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.
